- Cut out and score the paper according to template. If you are not using a cutting machine, it is recommended you print directly onto your paper of choice and then cut it out with a detail knife and ruler. Score along the indicated dotted lines.
- Fold along all of the score lines to define. Fold all of the circles in half.
- Apply glue to the top and bottom sections, as shown in the photo tutorial. You can use hot glue or a permanent tacky glue, whatever works best with your chosen paper.
